A Guide to Frame Styles

You can say what you
like - spectacles or glasses are a powerful trend driver. You can never go
wrong with trendy frames' styles, and if you want to keep the glare of the sun
at bay, today's eye-popping shades will not only do that but will also have you
looking your trendy best. 

Comfort comes Before Looks 

While looks do play a very important role, comfort when wearing glasses remains
the major factor, and the bridge is an important part when thinking about the
type of frames you want. The reason being that the bridge design needs to be
supportive and comfortable so as to maintain the position of the lenses without
leaving deep, red grooves because of a wrong fit. Remember that the frames
always have adjustable nose pads to achieve a comfortable fit, so that if the
bridge is too small or the frame's size is sitting too high, the optometrist
can adjust these for you.

The optometrist can also be useful in explaining to you the meaning of the
frame sizes you find, often printed on the arm of the frames, and which will
represent the bridge width, the lens width and the length of the arms. 

Make a Statement with Your Unique Choice 

With today's attractive frames style, you can make sure they become the focal
piece of your outfit. You can stick to simple, neutral frames styles if you
like - you do not always have to have bright colours to make a bold statement.
Also, consider how often you wear glasses. 

You may want to spend less on your frames because you do not wear them much,
whereas someone who wears them often and has a heavy-duty kind of job, may be
looking for more robust, durable frames. Then again, someone who is in a
professional- or the entertainment- or hospitality industry may look for a more
suave, chic type of frames.

It is why you need to think about your daily lifestyle, because your activities
may require some special features. You may want to be looking at scratch
resistant frames so that you do not have to be constantly handing them in for
repairs. Whatever frames' styles you choose, always pick glasses with frames
that come with a warranty.

Functional or Fashionable? It is all in
the Face

These days you have got so many choices for stylish eye-wear that, especially
since there are frames that have been made to complement different face shapes
and even skin shades. If you have never thought about whether you have a
square, round, oval or heart-shaped face, there is no need to worry, because
your optometrist will invite you to their frame boards in-store and between the
two of you, find the frames styles that suit your face shape and your

For instance, if you have a squarish, rectangular shaped face, you might want
to choose round or oval frames to soften- or detract from the strong, hard
lines of your face. The optometrist will advise you on material types used for
the frames, the weight of frame as well as other features and specifications.
There will be a mirror in-store and you can try on different specs to get an
idea of what you are confident with. 

Get Your Looks, Functionality and
Comfort Sorted

Whether you wear optometrist sunglasses only in Summer or you wear 'see-ing'
glasses every day of your life, choose the frame's style carefully as it will
add to your comfort, your functionality and your confidence.
